I went on Friday to the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. Mostly, it was just hot and buggy (if I stop posting in about a week or so, you can assume it’s because of West Nile), but I saw some nice birds, including ibis, osprey and many black crowned night herons. I’d definitely recommend stopping in there, just not in late August around noon-time.

Saturday and Sunday were mostly spent avoiding spending time outdoors in New York – although it was only 85 or 90°, it was also 80% humidity!
